Prague 2 - Vysehrad, Vinohrady



Prague 2 is dominated by Vinohrady, a desirable residential neighborhood that overflows into Prague 3 and 10. The name refers to the vineyards that dominated the area in the 19th century. One of the largest parks in Prague, Havlíckovy Sady, is also located in Vinohrady, alongside which still lies a working vineyard.

Today's Vinohrady, however, is less focused on agriculture and more interested in good times in good company. This attitude is evident in down-to-earth delicious restaurants like Mozaika and Passepartout, friendly bars like Cheers and Hapu, and the expansive park/beer garden, Riegrovy Sady. Inhabited by well-to-do locals and expats, Vinohrady's tree-lined streets and beautifully-restored architecture offer a haven from the tourist-soaked center.

Another notable Prague 2 neighborhood is Vyšehrad, which is dominated by Vyšehrad Castle. Perched atop a rocky hill just above the Vltava River, the crumbling castle was the stronghold of Prague during the Přemyslid dynasty. Within the decaying walls are situated the Basilica of St Peter and St Paul, the St. Martin Rotunda, and the Vyšehrad cemetery, as well as landscaped gardens and the Gothic ruins of Libuse's Baths. Outside of the castle, Vyšehrad is a quiet residential area.
